It may just be a mixture of "Thinner" and "Night of the Demon" to some people but, outside of the deafening sound in movie theatres, the Unrated DVD is pretty good.
7) Jennifer's Body
Even if you aren't a big Megan Fox fan, this is entertaining enough in an 80s "Prom Night II" kind of way.
8) Laid To Rest
Another old school slasher with some great kills even if the suspense and acting aren't up to quite the same high standard.
9) Twilight: New Moon
I haven't even seen it yet but I know it's going to make it to my top ten. The only rivals it had were "Friday the 13th" and "My Bloody Valentine" and they both sucked. It would have to be "Harry Potter awful" to not be one of the best films this year.
Not quite what I expected but it entertained me enough to make it to the end. Not so much a horror movie as a drama with a couple of horror moments. Jordan Ladd makes it more watchable than it could have been.
An honorable mention also goes to "Let the Right One In " since it was released on DVD this year. Really that was my top film of last year.
Although box office results are no indication of whether a movie was actually any good or not, I now feel justified about adding New Moon to the list. :) I've watched it now and gave it 6 out of 10 which makes it three times better than Friday the 13th and My Bloody Valentine 3D even if it isn't really a true horror movie (anymore than the Underworld series) per se. :D
Hey, everyone. Miss me? I guess my favorite horror flicks for 2009 would be Orphan was pretty cool, that was one evil little chick, lol. and Trick or treat was fun in a Creepshow kinda way. Anyhow, if this is the best for 2009 we really need to work on 2010 ya'll. SEE YA LATER.
Some of my favorites from '09 include...Trick 'r Treat, Pontypool, Orphan, The Children, Last House on the Left, Dead Snow, The Hills Run Red, Grace, Cold Prey....and even though it was made in '07, Rec. wasn't released on DVD here until '09.
